Collin McKean was exposed to the legal field at an early age. Growing up,
he watched his father practice in a small town in eastern Washington.
Collin realized early on the amount of skill and knowledge a good attorney
needs to successfully represent clients.
As he embarked on his own law career, he came to understand that the most
effective family law attorneys are also creative and compassionate. It
is these attributes coupled with a keen attention to detail and smart
planning for his clients that makes him an exceptional attorney. Collin
is Partner in Charge at the firm’s Portland office and serves family
law clients from our offices in both
Portland, OR and across the river in
Collin's experience as an accountant prior to becoming an attorney
also makes him especially good with complex dissolutions. This additional
knowledge allows him to effectively represent parties with business interests
and assets while navigating the legal process of valuing and dividing assets.
He's also a strong advocate for those seeking to end a marriage or
protect themselves or their children from domestic violence.
While Collin recognizes that many clients would prefer to resolve matters
without having the courts involved in deciding their future, he is a strong
litigator when a case does result in trial.
Collin possesses a background in alternative dispute resolution. This affords
Collin's clients more options in resolving their family law issues
with the assurance that their matters are handled in a sensitive and proficient manner.
Collin is a determined advocate for his clients; however, when he is able
to pull himself away from his cases, he enjoys music, swimming, skiing,
snowboarding and photography. He has also climbed Mt. Rainier.
